The Queen of Spades (PG)

The Queen of Spades (PG)

Dir: Thorold Dickinson UK 1949 1hr 35mins

With: Edith Evens, Anton Walbrook

Based on a story by the Russian author Alexander Pushkin this absolutely priceless gem of a British film tells of an elderly countess who strikes a bargain with the devil and exchanges her soul for the ability to always win at cards. An army officer, who is also a fanatic about cards, plays the countess beyond the limits of life and death and is subsequently haunted by the woman's spirit. This fresh print displays both the grandeur of its black and white cinemaphotography and the genius of director Thorold Dickinson.

"This stunning film is one of the few true classics of supernatural cinema" Martin Scorsese
